Reverend Brethren and Brethren of the Laity : 

The necessity for this early meeting of the Synod has 
arisen fiom the passage by the Legislature of Manitoba of the 
Bill for the Incorporation of the Synod, which was adopted 
by the last Synod. Before the Executive Committee can ex- 
ercise under the Bill the powers of the Synod, as a corpora- 
tion, it must be empowei'ed by the Synod to do so. 

A resolution passed by the Executive Committee will be 
placed before the Synod with this view. 

I shall then pass over to the corporation, ' The Synod of 
the Diocese of Rupert's Land,' the properties of the Clergy 
Endowment Fund and the Indian Mission Fund, and all tlie 
Parish and Mission properties, held by me, except what is con- 
nected with St. John's Cathedral. 

The property connected with St. John's Cathedral will be 
conveyed to the Dean and Chapter, but the Dean and Chapter 
cannot sell any land except with the consent of the Executive 
Committee. The Finance Committee of the Church Mission- 
ary Society executed a Deed of Trust in accordance with the 
views of the Curch Missionary Society, by which certain 
lands in the Province of Manitoba were conveyed to the 
Bi.shop of Rupert's Land for certain purposes. The Church 
Missionary Society has given its consent to the convej^ance by 
me of this property to the Synod, to be held, of course, by the 
Synod for the purposes mentioned in the Deed of Trust. I 
am accordingly to convey this property also to the Synod. It 
seems proper that on my passing over the properties a Declar- 
ation of Trust be made to me by the Synod. 

The property held by me for the Professorships, Scholar- 
ships, or prizes, I have conveyed or am in the course of con- 
veying to the St. John's College. 

I have also in the past held and managed property for 
various Mission and other purposes in the l^ioceses of Sas-

Bishop of Rupert's Land, as they were not my own private 
property, yet properly they were held and administered by 
me, rather as a private individual than as a corporation. I 
am passing all these Funds over to those who have left them 
or placed them in my hands. 

The only Funds, or Property, that will remain aftei- next 
week in charge of the corporation, the Bishop of Rupert's 
Land will, with the exception of interests in two or three 
mortgages, that cannot immediately be dealt with, be the 
Episcopal Endowment, the Machray Exhibitions, and the St. 
John's Cathedral Prebend Fund. 

Though it is convenient and desirable that there should be 
a sole corporation, ' Tne Bishop of Rupert's Land,' it was 
never my wish that the property of the Diocese or of the 
College should be in its Trust, when other arrangements 
could safely be made. Provision was made by me in each of 
the Deeds of Endowment of the Professorships for passing the 
property to the care of the College, Resolutions sanctioning 
the transfer of the property to the College and the Dean and 
Chapter were passed by the Synod in 1877. An effort was 
also made about the same time for the incorporation of the 
Synod, which fell through. Practical difficulties seemed to 
stand in the way, which have been removed by the Act passed 
last session. I am glail that I can at length Ijo relieved of 
what has been a heavy burden, and in the past few years a 
cause of much anxiety. 

I would again thank the members of the Advisory Board 
for all the trouble they have so willingly 'undertaken for the 
sake of the Church during the past two or thi ee years. 

I have also to thank my Solicitors for the generous way in 
which they have administcired the affairs of the Trust, so tliat 
it has been put to as little expense as possible. 

1 brought very fully before the last Synod the position of 
tlie Diocese from the large extent of settlement, and pointed 
out the need of ten new missions, 

I am sorry to say that, from various causes, the condition of 
things is not more satisfactory, tliough regular or occasional 
services have been ffivon in most of the districts.

Wc require, or will shortly require, Missionaries in the Dis- 
tricts of Manitou, Clearwater, Killarney, Deloraine, Oak Lake, 
Russell, Neepawa, Norquay, and Poplar Point, We have, 
however, made this advance on our position of last year that the 
Executive Committee is prepared to venture on giving grants 
in aid to clergymen for the places named, if suitable men 
can be found and the people undertake satisfactorily to do 
their part. 

There are two or three clergymen in view, but we need 
about six more. 

Archdeacon Pinkham and Canon O'Meara were lately in 
Canada, but they did not hear of clergymen to supply our 
need. I hope that when I visit England, which I expect to do 
shortly, I may meet with some who will suit us. 

We have been accidentally aided in the last few years by 
the enforced stay with us during the winter or a portion of 
the year of Missionaries of the Church Missionary Society on 
their way to the Diocese of McKenzie River. They were un 
able to go further toward their destination with any advan- 
tage. In this way Districts in the Diocese received the bene- 
fit of the services of the Rev. Messrs. Canham, Garton, and 
Wallis. These services have been very acceptable, as have 
been also those of two laymen, who had work in Indian Mis- 
sions, Messrs. Holmes and Ellington. I take this opportunity 
of thanking those gentlemen for very essential service in this 
Diocese, and of congratulating the Church Missionary Society 
on securing such promising workers. The Rev. Mr. Nicholl, 
at Pembina Crossing, and the Rev. Mr, Duudas, at Brandon, 
who are residing in the Diocese, have also given us very kind 
and substantial aid. 

Our Mission Fund is for the present in a better position than 
it was last year. 

A very full and clear statement of our case was drawn up 
after last Synod by a committee, and being approved of by 
the Executive Committee, was })laced before the English 
Church Societies and the Canadian Board of Missions. The 
Society for the Propagation of the Gospel acted w th great 
kindness and consideration. It replaced by a special grant 
the £200 withdrawn from its grant this year, and it renewed 
the full grant for next year. Then a very sympathetic reso- 
lution was v)assed by the Canadian Board of Missions welcom-

ing a representative from this Diocese to plead for our case in 
the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada, and authorizing their 
chairman, the Bishop of Ontario, to giv^ him a letter of strong 
recommendation. This the Bishop most kindly did. The 
result has been that Archdeacon Pinkham has raised a con- 
siderable sum in Eastern Canada. Canon O'Meara also secured 
some assistance in the Diocese of Nova Scotia. Our Mission 
H\md is again happily out of debt, and we have a small bal- 
an^j, giving us confidence to till up the missions named, if we 
can find the men. 

Immediately after the meeting of Synod I received £120 
from an English clergyman, the Rev. F. H. Baring, in aid of 
the Clergy Endowment Fund. This, with the help of some 
$90 contributed by members of the Church in Winnipeg, 
made up the sum enabling us to claim £500 each from the S. 
P. G. and S. P. C. K. The S. P. G. has further shown its 
a})[)reciation of our [)Osition and difficulties by agreeing to 
give its grant in future in sums of £500, to meet £1,000 from 
any other sources instead of £1,500 as formerly. 

However, as I have always wished to impress on the Synod, 
the most important (question is what we are doing and can do 
ourselves. I cannot say that there has been much advance in 
our own contributions last year to the Mission Fund, except 
that there have been numerous missionary meetings through- 
out the Diocese, at which several of our leading lay Church- 
men kindly united with the clergy in giving addresses. The 
collections at these meetings have been some help. But the 
pecuniary difficulties under which we labor in the Diocese 
have not yet been removed. Fertile, ujost fertile as the land 
generally is, our Province is subject to the usual vicissitudes 
of weather of an agricultural country. An unusually early 
frost last autumn, that visited a great part of North America, 
injured the crops more or less severely in many districts, 
though some districts escaped it altogether. 

Then the immigration has still continued to go west of 
Manitoba, though it seems extraordinary that, as is often the 
case, people with capital should be tempted by a free home- 
stead to go hundreds of miles west of Winnipeg, when the 
best of land can be purchased, almost anywhere throughout 
the Province, for veiy low prices. 

The consequence is that our settlements are not to any a[)- 



m 



— IG — 

preciable extent stronger, and our [)eople are in little better 
circumstances than last year. 

Notwithstanding these facts, there has been somehow or 
other a decided improvement this season in Winnipeg, Por- 
tage la Prairie and Brandon, and I hope more or less over the 
country. I feel sure that in a very few years our lands will 
be occupied, our settlements filled up, and our people prosper- 
ous. But for some time we must expect a hard struggle. 

Still the Executive Connnittee is persuaded that our people 
must be called upon to make self-denial in securing for them- 
selves the means of grace, as they have to do in other things. 
It has, therefore, voted $400 instead of $500 as the grant in 
aid in the case of all the missions now vacant. This involves 
a greater call on the liberality of our people. I trust they 
will rise to the necessity. Nothing will more encourage 
others to help us than the conviction that we are struggling 
manfully and honestly to do our best. 

Our immediate difficulty, then, is in getting effective men. 
It is a serious matter to leave a Mission without a settled 
clergyman. However excellent may be the services of visiting 
clergymen, tliej'^ soon cease to satisfy. But it is a still more 
serious matter to have in a Mission an ineffective and unac- 
ceptable clergyman. 

There are important spiritual and religious reasons that 
might appeal to young men to throw themselves into our 
work. A new country is being built up. Its tone and char- 
acter will largely depend on the first workers. There seems, 
then, a special call to do battle here for Christ and the Church. 
But patting aside such reasons, I think many a young man of 
promise might do much worse for himself temporally than un- 
dertake one of our young Missions. The people of this country 
are generous, and in most Missions they will do their best to 
help a faithful and earnest pastor. Though the expense of 
living is still considerably greater than in Ontario, it is much 
' less than it was. And the future is ours. Men do not hesi- 
tate in the pursuit of worldly business to come here prepared 
to make some sacrifice and exercise some self-denial at first. 
So we might expect clergymen to come to us, though they 
may not have at first the income they wish and need. But, 
on the other hand, every efibrt is made to keep effective 
clergymen in the Dioceses in which they are. It is perfectly

clear, then, that .separated as we are by such a distance from 
Eastern Canada, as well as England, we must depend mainly 
on those we can educate in our own college. 

Thus apart altogether from the natural desire to have a 
college, where our young men may be educated for the learned 
professions amid associations in sympathy with our Church 
and under careful guardianship, the strengthening and 
efficiency of Si. John's College becomes, even as regards the 
Mission field, the first and most piessing care of the Diocese. 

It seems unnecessary to repeat the story of the embarass- 
ments that have unexpectedly followed from the bui^ Mng of 
the new College. I am happy to say that by arrangements, 
that reduced the interest very materially, no addition has been 
made to the debt since 1884, while the increase of the General 
Endowment Fund last year by over $10,000, which has been 
lent for the present to the College, has so far removed the 
j)re.ssure of interest. This large addition to the Endowment 
for general purjwses was mainly owing to the very generous 
donation of $3,000 from Sir Donald Smith, by which the 
£4',000 was completed, that enables us to claim the balance of 
the £1,000 granted by the S. P. ( t. The donation was re- 
ceived from Sir Donald Smith a day or two after the close of 
last Synod. 

The majority of the students are this year to be in the new 
College, under the charge of Canon O'Meara. This necessi- 
tates some expenditure in improving the heating, which it is 
expected will be met by collecting some of the subscriptions 
formerly promised but not yet received. 

But, though there has been an improvement in the financial 
condition of the college, the expenses, including the interest, 
can only be met with difficulty, and while there is such a bur- 
den of debt, the condition of the College must continue inse- 
cure. Nor is that the only difficulty. The Fund for General 
Purposes has to meet the interest on the debt, while it is 
urgently needed to pay the salary of a master, who can tea h 
Mathematics and Natural Science. We find great difficulty in 
securing this combination of subjects, but we must endeavor 
to obtain it, as we cannot expect that, for some years, there 
will be a sufficient number of students reading in these sub- 
jects to give proper employment to separate teachers, even if 
we could afford them.

And this leads me to remark that while we occupy in this 

country an exceptionally promising position for the future as 

regards University Education, yet there are, for the present, 
inconveniences and difficulties arising out of our system. In 
supporting very cordially the University arrangements sanc- 
tioned by Parliament, I looked foiward to substantial assist- 
ance from the State —not for the College, but for the Univer- 
sity. I expected that the State would in due course furnish 
University buildings with provision for our meetings and ex- 
aminations — with Library, Museums, Laboratory, and work- 
shops. I also hoped for the appointment of Teachers in the 
University in Science, Modern Languages, and other subjects, 
whose lectures would be open to all students of the Univer- 
sity. But things have travelled faster than I even antici- 
pated. While the State is not in a position to give effectual 
hell), ^^^ University has allowed the widest extent of reading 
for its Degrees. Students are encouraged to follow their 
special predilections, and can proceed to the B. A. Degree not 
only by an elementary knowledge of various subjects, but by 
higher reading in a special branch of study as Classics, Math- 
ematics, Natural Science, Moral and Mental Philosophy, and 
Modern Languages; and students in St. John's College were 
actually last year studying for their Degree by each of these 
special courses. This has thrown a heavy responsibility on 
the Colleges, and I have to say that St. John's College is not 
equal to it, unless it either gets a considerable addition to its 
funds or larger assistance from Government. And I expect it 
IS very much the same with the other Colleges. Last yeai* 
St. John's College received from the Marriajre License Fund 
$1,568.25, but this statement conveys an erroneous impression. 
That sum did not properly represent a year's payment, though 
it fell in during the course of a year In fact, the whole sura 
received since the first payment, Jan. 13, 1879, covering seven 
and a half years, has only been $3,514.93. No payment has 
been received yet this year. 

I do not think that the State is at present able to give the 
necessary direct assistance to the University, and I cannot say 
that I think it is desirable that it should, until it can do it 
adequately. The permanent buildings of the University must 
be costly, and it is better to leave them alone, till they can be 
taken in hand properly. But it is only due to the Colleges 
and to the students of the University that, till this is practi- 



W^B 



^ment has 



— 10 — 

caUle, the State should i^ive the aid absohitely required by the 
Colleges to secure efficient instruction. St. John's College re- 
quires at least .1?2,( >()(>. 

The state of the College continues so critical that, very 
much against my will, I am to visit England to see if I can 
obtain such help as will make the College at lea.st safe and 
fairly effective, till wo can do more for ourselves and the States 
is able to aid the University effectively. I cannot but think 
that, if we can but weather successfully the next five or six 
years, we shall be able to get on satisfactorily. My effort will 
be to raise fil.OOO for the Gi^neral Endowment B'und, so as to 
raise it to £9,{)(K), when we shall be entitled to £1,001) from 
the S. P. C. K. It is a simple necessity that this effort be 
made. And while such an effort is made in England, should 
not something be done among ourselves? And this not merely 
in the way of soliciting donatirns from individuals, but in 
bringing the College annually before the congregations of the 
Diocese. In the Diocese of Toronto there is an annual collec- 
tion for Trinity College, and throughout the Presbyterian con- 
gregations of this country there is an annual sermon, with a 
collection for their College. One advantage of this would be 
that, by the College being brought more distinctly before the 
people, there might bo an accession of pupils. In the College 
School there is an opportunity given for an excellent classical 
education. I have often wondered that so few Day Pupils 
come from Winnipeg. The fees are small — only $30 in the 
year — and the walk from most T)arts of the city would be 
anything but hurtful. Young boys of 14 from the College 
School have won Scholarships in the last two years at the 
preliminary examination of the University — being not only 
first in Classics, but well prepared in the common school 
subjects. The remarks I have made apply equally to the 
Ladies' College It has few Day Pupils except from the im- 
mediate vicinity, though the education given is veiy excellent. 
The late examination wa^> most satisfactory. 

Before concluding I desire to express my regret that there 
is so great irregularity in taking up the collections directed 
by the Synod. I believe myself in the regular accumulation 
of small sums. If all the congregations gave to each object 
the prescribed collection, the result would prove very gratify- 
ing. But I especially regret the omission in the case of the 
Clergy, Widow and Orphan's Fund. Somehow only a small 

3 



— 20 



proportion of the clergy now think it worth their while to be 
contribtitors to the Fund, and a lar<^c number systematically 
io[nore the collection. Had there been a vigorous pushing of 
the Fund, it might now have been in a very satisfactory po- 
sition. 

But, Dear Brethren of the Clergy, let us never forget, when 
thinking of the prosperity of the mission work of the J)iocese 
or its institutions, how nuich depends on our own consecration 
to the Lord's service. It is my experience that, where our 
Clergy are devt)ted to tlieir work, sensible, and gonial, the 
services of our Church are welcomed not only by our own 
Chuich people, but by the settlers in general. There is very 
little active prejudice. Only lot us try to approach the ideal 
sketched out lately by the Venerable Bishop of Norwich in 
these words: "Let it be clear to our conscience before Go:i 
and evident in our life before men that the work, which the 
Lord has given us to do for Him, by our life, word, and work, 
so to testify of Christ to men as to win men to Christ, is the 
loved object of our hearts, the absorbing aim of our life, the 
one thing we do, to which all else is subservient." 

Since the last meeting of Synod my predecessor, Bishop An- 
derson, has been called to his rest. In ^U his life, what I have 
been setting forth was beautifully exemplified. He adorned the 
doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. Gentle and atfec- 
tionate, he seemed to live for others. All he had was at the 
Master's service. He was beloved, as Bishop, by all the com- 
munity here, and he was beloved in the Parishes in England, 
which had the privilege of having him as their pastor. He 
ever continued to have a warm place in his heart for this 
country. Not the least of the many losses I have to regret on 
my return to England is the want of his hearty welcome and 
cheering words. Great, doubtless, now is his joy in the pres- 
nce of his Lord. Let it then be in like manner, Brethren, 
''iur aim to present ourselves a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable 
unto God, which is our reasonable service. 

Moved by Mr. Brydges, seconded by Archdeacon Pinkham,

now about to be transferred to the Synod, and all other pro- 
perty now held or hereafter to be acquired. 

Mr. J. E. Cooper, of Emerson, handed in his certificate as 
lay delegate and took his seat. 

Mr Howell I'ead a declaration of trust prepared in connec- 
tion with the transfer to the now incorporated Synod, of the 
property, money, etc , hitherto vested in the corporation of the 
Bishop of Rupert's Land, Mr. Howell gave explanations of 
the circumstances, and stated that the deeds were being pre- 
jjared and would be executed before His Lordship leaves for 
England. 

The rules of order having been suspended, it was resolved, 
on motion of Mr. Howell, seconded by Mi-. Brydges, 

That having heard read the draft declaration of trust from 
this corporation to the corjioration of the Bishop of Rupert's 
Land, it is resolved that the same is satisfactory, and that, as 
soon as the lands, moneys and securities for moneys are trans- 
ferred to this corporation, the proposed deed of trust be exe- 
cuted by this corporation, and for this purpose, that the coi*- 
poration seal be affixed and verified as provided by clause 
12 of this act. 

Dean Grisdale, on behalf of the committee to prepare a de- 
sign for a seal, reported, recommending the adoption of a cir- 
cular disc with the words, "The Synod of the Diocese of 
Ru])ert's Land," as the seal of the Synod, for the present. 

The report was adopted. 

A number of notices of njotion were given. 

After explanations by Mr. Brydges, it was moved by Mr. 
Brydges, seconded by Re\. O. Fortin, and resolved, 

That the Committee on Revision of Canons not having had 
time to complete its work, the Bishop be requested to name 
a conunittee of nine to complete the revision of the existing 
Canons, and suggest such other additional Canons as it may 
think advisable to reconunend for adoption and to rei)ort at 
the next meeting of Synod. 

Subsequently tlie Bishop named the following connnittee:

On motion of Mr. Brydges, seconded by Archdeacon Cowley, 
the following motions for changes in the constitution were 
adopted : 

1. That in clause 10 the following words be omitted, viz.: 
"First sent to the Executive Committee for consideration."

the fact that no commutation fund exists, as in Eastern 
Canada, and that there is no provision for the support of clergy- 
men incapacitated for duty by reason of age or infirmity, and 
suggested the following resolutions, which were

St, 3ob!i's (loUcGC doinmittcc IRcport. 



Winnipeg, 31st July, 188(5. 

The following resolution was passed at the last Synod : 

" That the Most Rev. the Metropolitan bo asked to 
" name a committee of the Synod to be called the College 
" Committee, to report U[)oii everything x'elating to St. John's 
" College and kindred in.stitutions, financially and otherwise, 
" with the view of strengthening the })osition of St. John's 
" College in the Diocese. 

The Bishop subsequently appointed the Committee as fol- 
lows : 

The Dean, Revd. Canon O'Meara, Revd. Canon Matheson, 
Hon. J. Norquay, H. M. Howell and C. J. Brydges. 

The Committee will endeavor to place fully before the 
Synod all the facts relating to St. John's College and St. John's 
Cathedral, so that there may be a clear understanding as to 
the souices from which the funds have been derived and the 
uses to which they are ap})lied. 

The first question to be considered is St. John's Parish. 

ST. John's church or cathedral. 

The Hudson's Bay Com})any, many years ago, set aside lot 
4*3 in St. John's, otherwise known as lot 222 in the Company's 
oJlicial survo}' of Red River Settlement. The lot was convey- 
ed to the i)resent Bishop of Rupert's Land as a glebe for the 
Incumbent of St. John's Church. Ultimately, on the transfer 
of the country, the Dominion Government, as in all cases of 
([uiet occu)>ation at the time, gave a patent for the lot to the 
Bisho}) of Rupert's Land. This lot has a frontage of 20 chains 
on the Red River, and ccmfains 331 acres, not including the 
outer two miles. Of the latter a patent was obtained for ir»5.l2 
acres, and with the scrij) for the remaindei-, 360 acres of farm 
lands were obtained in N h and S. VV. ^ of 27, 1, 10 w. The 
total acreage belonging to St. John's is thus 840 acres. 

Lot 44, except a small piece which was conveyed by the 
Hudson's Bay Co. to the Leith trustees of the Bishopric, was 
the property of the late Bishop Anderson, and given by him to 
the present Bishop, to be disposed of at his discretion, but 



— 40 — 

especially to supply the want of an Episcopal {,'lebo. The 
l]ishop has set a[)art a certain portion of this for St. Joim's 
CV)lh'n-o. including; the site of St. John's Collooe School, the 
residence formerly occupied by J)ean Urisdale, Canon Mathe- 
son's house, and the two semi-detached masters' houses. 

The chuich and chuichyard of St. John's are partly upon 
lot 4,S and partly on lot 44. The new colleoc ori tlie west side 
of Main street stands on a piece of land containinjoj 4 acres, 3 
of which are on lot 48 and one on lot 44. The residences of 
the Cathedral staff are partly on lot 4?} and some on lot 44. 
West of Main street the land was all laid out in town lots or 
blocks. 

A considerable number of these lots and l)lo('ks were sold in 
the last three or four years. A portion of the purchase money 
was in every case paid in cash and the usual course is now in 
progress of dealing with sales which are in default. 

The probability is that all the outer two nnles, and a great 
part of the inner two miles, will by deed or foreclosure, re- 
vert to the Dean and Chapter to whom these properties will 
be tran.sferred in trust by the Bishop. 

The interest received last year on account of the Dean and 
Chapter was .'$4670.()(). There was on 81st December, 1885, a 
cash balance on hand in favor of the Dean and Chapter of 
$11,030.88, waiting to be invested. 

The sum of $4,G7G.G0, received last year for interest, repre- 
sents at 7 per cent, per annum, a capital sum of 80G,800. 

The further income of the Dean and Chapter will depend 
uj^on the amount realized from the mortgages now in ari'ear, 
and from future sales of land. It will doubtless be an increas- 
ing sum, as the land which they hold becomes valuable and is 
sold. 

The total amount divided amongst the five professors who 
carry on the work of St. John's Parish and the scholastic 
work in the college and school was for the year 1885 as follows : 

biterest on funds belonging to 5 chairs $4,045 16

Which, divided amongst the five professors, gives an average 
of Sl,727 for the year 1885, In addition, several of the pro- 
fessors have a house free of rent. 

In addition to the Parish work of St. John's, and the scho- 
lastic work of the college and scliool, the Cathedral staff takes 
charge of the Parishes of St. George's, in Winnipeg, and St. 
Paul's and IVIorris. They have also seen to the supply ot the 
mission J in the country which are vacant. On the whole, the 
Cathedral staff, in addition to the three regular Parishes above 
refen-ed to, have supplied during the last year, ministerial 
woi-k to Portage k Prairie, Manitoba Penitentiary, Stonewall, 
Victoria, Poplar Point, High Bluff, and various other parishes 
or missions wliich have been vacant from time to time. In 
this work they have received valuable assistance trom the 
senior students of Tlieology. 

It should be stated that the Parish of St. John's, as such, 
yields no income to any of the Clergy attached to it. 

The following statement will show exactly the receipts and 
expenditure ot the Parish Church for tlie year ending Easter,

2. Exegetical 



51 



:>. Ecclesiastical History. 

4. Pastoral Theology. 

5. Music. 

It will be desirable to give a brief history in regard to each 
of these chairs. 

1st, systematic theology. .. 

The funds for these chairs have been provided by donations 
from individuals, and collections obtained in Canada by the 
Bishop, and by the Bishop of Saskatchewan, then Archdeacon 
McLean, and by the Bishop in England, mainly through his 
oM friends. The S. P. C. K. added a grant of £500 sterling. 
The greater part was given specially, and distinctly designate d 
as to be available for the maintenance of this chair in St. 
John's College and no other purpose whatever, and the re- 
mainder was as similarly designated by the Bishop, from funds 
placed at his discretic by friends. 

These amounts have been fioui time to time invested in va- 
rious securities, and the same resuk has followed these invest- 
ments, as has been the case with all investments in this coun- 
try I luring the last few years. Interest in several cases has 
Ite^Mi in default, values of properties have declined, mortgages 
have had to be, and must further be, foreclosed, and until this 
process has come to an end, the actual sum available for earn- 
ing interest to be paid to the holder of this chair, can'iot be 
positively ascertained or state.l. The amount of interest re- 
ceived on account of the investuient of this fund, duiing the 
year 1885, was 81,082.30, which at 7 per cent, represents a 
capital of $15,457.00. The final settlem-Mit of the mortgages 
will bring the fund, it is expected, to a largor amount than the 
sum just named. 

2NI), E.X.EGETICAL THEOLOGY. 

The funds for this chair have been provided by a sum of 
£l,O()0 sterling given by some (me in Kngland tind held in 
trust by the CM S. for the jMirpose of this chair, and which

the C. M. S. Tlie interest received last year amounted to 
$l,09-t.58, which, allowing 3 per cent, for the C. M. S. mon- 
ey and the balance at 7 pei" cent, represents a total capital of 
$18,285. 

3rd, ecclesiastical history. 

The funds for this chair are derived from various gifts from 
the Bishop of Rupert's Land, between July, 1874", and Dec, 
1880, amounting to a total sum of $10,000; from a grant of 
£501) in favor of this chair by the S.P.C.K., and a sum of X500 
sterling which was raised by the Bishop of Rupert's Land 
amongst his friei'ds, and was augmented out of the surplus 
income when the Bishop of Rupert's Land held the c^^air. 

The amount of interest received last year on investfvients for 
this (^hair was $1,142 90, which, at 7 per cent., represents a 
capital of $1(),314. 

4th, pastoral thp:ology. 

The funds for this chair were mainly derived from a sale b}' 
the college of sites for the residences of Dean and Canons, who 
are also Professors of the college. This sum was $(!,000. The 
interest received last year was $302.82. The capital of this 
fund Uiay be stated at $0,500. 

5th, music. 

The Bishop gave towards this chair the sum of $2,000 from 
funds given him by iriends, and a further sum of $0,000 has 
been donated from the Cathedral for land for the residences of 
the Professors. The interest received on account of this fund 
last year was $422.50. The capital of this fund may be con- 
sidered as $8,500. 

The total interest received last year for all the funds be- 
longing to the five cliairs was $4,045.10, which represents a 
total capital as follows : 

Systematic Theolo{,'y $15,457 

Exegetical Tlujology 18,285 

Ecclesiastical History 16,.T14 

Pastoral Theology 6,500 

Music 8,500 

Total $G5,05G 

The above is the interest-))roducing capital. As the mort- 
gages in arrear are dealt with, these amount will doubtless 



— 53 — 

be increased, just as will be the case, by the same process, in 
regard to the funds of the Dean and Chapter. 

The Dean and Chapter and the chairs of the five professors 
have at present an active cajiital of, in all, S131,85(j. It would 
appear to be very desirable that all the old mortgages, not 
now yielding full interest, should be finally brought to an is- 
sue and the funds carefully invested, so as to produce a steady 
income. 

GENERAL ENDOWMENT FUND. 

The interest of this fund is available tor any of the pur[)oses 
of the College. The Bishop commenced it several years ago 
with the hope of raising at least !:>o(),00(). The S.P.G. and 
S.P.C.K. each encouraged the efibrt by a vote of £1,000 on 
certain conditions. Since the last meeting of Synod, Sir 
Donald A. Smith gave .S;5,()()(» to this fund'. This large gift 
raised the fund to the amount required for securing the grant 
from the S. P. G. That grant has been paid. The further 
gifts obtained by the Bishop, with the addition of sums raised 
in England by the Dean, and Archdeacon Pinkham, make up 
nearly $22,000. There i.s, besides, a mortgage for !!i^3,000 on 
land, which is at present in default. This sum of $22,000 is 
at present lent to the College, forming part of its debt. When 
£!),000 or about $1^3,000 dollars is raised, the vote of £1,000 
horn the S.P.C.K. can be claimed. This must be raised soon, 
as the grant lapses if not claimed within five years. 

This sum of $22,000, added to the total of $1IH,S50 alrea- 
dy stated, brings the total capital to the sura of $153,85(5. 

SCHOLARSHIPS. 

There arc the following scholarships in connection with the 
College against each of which is given the capital belonging 
to it.

The funds for these 8cholaroh>i)S liave been obtained by gifts 
from persons in this country or formerly connected with it. 
Amongst these contributors the Bishop of Rupert's Land gave 
an afifiireuate sum, divided amongst several of the scholarships, 

of 850U. 

BUILDINGS. 

The following is a list of buildings which have been erected 
and which have cost an aggregate sum of nearly $12U,0(M), 
viz. : 

Cathedral and Parish Church. 
Old College School. 
Divinity Hall. 
Ciymi isium. 
Kingston Hall. 

Professors' residence (Refuge). 
Canon Matheson's house. 
Canon Coombes' house. 
Two semi-detached masters' houses. 

The New College on Main Street, including the Warden's 
house. 

The Deans residence. 

In 1881 it was decided to build the new college, and sub- 
scriptions and donations for that pur[)ose have been collected 
from various sources, amounting to a total of aboiit !!^"25,<>0(). 

There is at present a debt upon the college of i?(iO,i)0(), upon 
about iS*22,000 of which, however, beijig part of the general 
endowment fund of the college, no interest is paid. 

Of the debt of i56(),9()0, about $5.S,()(iO has arisen from the 
construction of the various college buildings, and the balance 
from the heavy payments of interest, from the cost of furnish- 
ing the newcollegeandthedoulleand excessive costc^f carrying 
on two establishments in the year 1884. The college has sel- 
dom done more than about meet its current expenses, includ- 
ing rei)airs. 

The charges for scholars are less than thev arc at Len- 
noxville. Port Hope and other Hrst-tlass schools, whilst it is 
well known that the cost of living, and of all charges, especially 
fuel, have heretofore been very much higher here than in the 
»'ast.

WORK OF THE COLLEOE AND SCH(JOL. 

In an appendix is given a synopsis of the work done during 
the i)ast year. 

FINANCIAL WORKING OF THE COLLEGE AND SCHOOL. 

In addition to the tivc professors, there are three masteis 
eni})loyed in teaching, making a total statf of eight in all. 

The accounts La' the year 1885 have been audited by two 
members of this committee (Mr. H. M. Howell and Mr. C. J. 
Brydges), and the following is the result : 

Receipts for the year 1885 were — 

liisliop of Rupert's Land $ 187 50 

Church Missionary Society 771 18 

Observatory grant and expenses 82-3 50 

St. John's Cathedral organist's salary 300 

Marriage license fees 1,508 25 

S.P.G. grant 614 57 

University Scholarshijis 405 

Fees received from students and boys 14,101 69 

Total ^18,771 69 

Expenditures for the year — 

Salaries 43,!)00 

Servants' wages 1,455 

Interest paid 1,919 10 



— 56 — 

Insurance 219 85 

Fuel, oil and simdiiL's 1,0(10 97 

Brecad 540 48 

Meat, fish, etc 1,785 (54 

Groceries 1,567 83 

Clotldng, medical attendance, etc 1,301 67 

Laundry 610 27 

Books, printing, etc 735 70 

English invoices 908 28 

Repairs to old buildings 476 12 

Repairs to new college 046 02 

University scholarships 355 

Steward's account 1,010 

Sundries 211 70 

Total 18,709 69 

Cr $02 GO 

From this it will bo seen that the working of the college and 
school for the year 1885, about paid its way, with an aggre- 
gate of 90 students and scholars. 

ST. John's ladies' school. 

This school has a building which cost about S^O.OOO and 
stands on three acres of land. The furniture is worth $2,300. 
It has a consolidated debt amounting to $12,000, the interest 
on which is met by the Board of Governors by means of vol- 
untary subscriptions. The interest is at 4 per cent. The 
school is under the management of Mrs. A. E. Cowley, who 
has thus kindiy relieved the Board of Governors, for the time, 
from a very great responsibility. 

At the recent examination, 58 pupils })resented themselves. 
The Bishop of Rupert's Land is the President of the Board of 
Governors and Canon Matheson is Secretary-Treasurer, 

CONCLUSION. 

It is hoped that this statement of facts will place the real 
and true position ot the Cathedral and college before the mem- 
i)ers of the church throughout the Diocese, and dis])el many 
illusions which have been in exisl^ence. 

It is obvious tliat the machinery for the work in St. 
John's College, whilst barely sufficient to provide all the 
instruction which ought to be given in such an educational 
establishment, is beyond the present demands made upon it 
if judged solely by the number of students, But this is a 



W '1 ' 

Ifi ; . 



— 07 — 

most fallacious test. The number of students and scholars 
could be very largely increased without requiring any addi- 
tional teaching staff, except possibly upon special subjects. 
The present number of teachers are necessaiy to deal with all 
the subjecl/S which have to be taught. 

In other colleges the number of students is no larger, and 
in some cases less, than at St. John's. 

In King's College, Windsor, the last term closed with 23 
students, of whom four were graduates. 

At Trinity College, Toronto, four degi'ees of B. A wc-re 
conferred. 

At Morin College, Quebec, there are six professors rcpre- 
si'ntiug the r;ubjects of the course in arts. It had 22 students 
and sent up six successful candidates for the degree of B. A. 

At Lennoxville there were 21 students and (52 boys. In 
connection with that college there are four professors and five 
masters. 

At St. Francis College, Richmond, there are five professors 
and lecturers and twelve students. 

At St. John's there were 21 students. 

It is of vital importance that every effort should be made 
to increase the numbers of those who attach themselves 
to St. John's. As the couritry progresses in nundjors and 
wealth there should be no difficulty in accomplishing this. 

Not only is the education afforded equal to anything which 
can be obtained in any part of the Dominion of Canada, but 
St. John's offers almost the only possible means of supplying 
the wants of the Diocese in regard to missionary clergymen. 

It would not be proper to close this report without direct- 
ing special attention to the manner in which the Bishop of 
Rupert's Land has personally aided the work which he has 
undertaken and directed. 

The Bir^hop has lent considerable sums of money from time 
to time, to aid the college, out of the P]piscopal Endowment 
fund, charging only 4 per cent, on the sums thus lent; thus so 
far as those loans were concerned diminishin-r his income from 
tliem by considerably more than one-half. 

In addition, the Bishop has given absolutely very large 



M 



I 



■ t 



— 08 — 

Slims of money to the buiklincf fund of the college, to the 
chair of Ecclesiastical History, to scholarships, to the Ladies 
College, to the general endowment fund, and to various other 
objects in connection with the college. The aggregate of these 
fiirurcs would reach a very larjje sum indeed. But large as is 
t' e total, it forms but a portion onlj'^ of the earnest, selt-sacri- 
fi ing spirit in which the Bishop has devoted his untiring 
energy and zeal in the jiroinotion of the objects which have 
been so dear to his heait.

To the Most Reverand, the M etropolitai} of RupeH's Land. 

My Lord, — I beg to siilnnit my re))ort of the two visits i 
liave made to Eastern Canada, to represent to our brethern 
there the needs of the Church in this Diocese. 

My mission grew out of certain action taken by the Domes- 
tic and Foreign Missionary Society of tlie Church of England 
in Canada, as shown in the following resolutions adopted by 
its Board of Missions last autumn : 

1. " Moved by the Bishop cf Niagara, seconded by Mr. R. T. 
Walkem, — That in the event of the Bisho}) of Rupert's Land 
sending a Representative to set liefore the cor; .^legations in 
this ecclesiastical Province, the pressing needs of the newly 
settled regions of Manitoba, the Board will extend to him a 
hearty welcome, aud, so far as their intiuence can reach, will 
promote his etlbrts. 

2. Moved and seconded ioy the same, — That this Board, con- 
sisting of the Bishops and clerical and lay re[)rcsentatives of 
each Diocese, do authorize their chairman acting on their be- 
half, to furnish the representative of the Metropolitan (;f 
Ru})ert's Land with a letter of strong reconnnendation to the 
Bishops and clergy of all the congregations in all the Dioceses, 
urging them to extend to hiiu all the aid in their power in 
presenting to their congregations the pressing needs of the 
Church of England in iManitoba, and inducing them to con- 
ti'ibute liberallv towards them. 

8. Moved by Mr. R. T. Walkem, .seconded by Mr. A. H. 
Campbell, — That a return of the mcmies received by the 
Representative of the Bishop of l^ujiert's Land be sent to the 
Treasurer of the particular Diocese in which they are collected, 
as well as to the Treasurer of the Board of Missions. 

J. T. Ontario, Chairman, 

C. H. MocKRiDGE, General Secretary. 

Upon the receipt of these resolutions, your Lordship was 
pleased to issue the following commission : — 



t 



It.' 



— ()0 — 

"TTnderstanding tliat I am autliorized by the "Board of 
Management of" the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society 
of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada," consisting of Bishops 
and clerical and lay representatives of each Diocese, to send a 
Kepresentative to urge u]>on the congregations in the Ecclesias- 
tical Province of Canada the pressing needs in the newly 
settled rei>ions of Manitoba, covei'ino; in fact now almost the 
whole of the Province of Manitoba, and that this Representa- 
tive will, at the request of the Board, be furnished with a letter 
of strong recommendation from the Chairman of the Board to 
the Clergy of all the congregations in all the Dioceses, urging 
them to extend to him all aid in their power in presenting to 
their cono-refjations the needs of the Church in this Diocese, 
and in inducing them to contribute liberally towai'ds them 
1 hereby nominate as such Representative the Venerable 
W. C. Pinkham, B. D,, Archdeacon of Manitoba, and Secretary 
of the Synod." R. Rupert's Land. 

Blshop's Court, Winnipeg, 

November 18th, 1885. 

Immediately after receiving this authorization I set out for 
Ottawa to obtain from the Bishop of Ontario as Chairman of 
the Board, the letter i-efeired to in the resolutions, and his 
Lordship was good enough to honor my application by giving 
me the fol lowing : 

" To fhe BUliopfi and CJen/y of all the conrjregations in all 
the Dioceses of the Eaies mistical Province of Canada : 

Dear Brethern. — 

In compliance with the foregoing resolutions of the 
" Board of Management of the J)omestic and Foreign Mission- 
ary Society of the Church of England in Canada," I liereby 
commend toyour Christian sympathy and liberality the appeal 
to be made by the Ven. Archdeacon Pinkham, the accredited 
Representative of the Metropolitan of Rupert's Land. The 
needs of Manitoba are great and urgent, and now is the time 
to lay the foundationsof the Church there deeply and strongly, 
in the confident hope that we are doing the Master's work in 
a land that will become, before many years have elapsed, the. 
home of multitudes i>f our Church and nation. 

T am, yours faithfully, 

J. T. Ontario, 
Chairman of D. & F. Missionary Society.

During this visit I prcaeiied twice in Ottawa, twice in 
Peterborough, twice in Hamilton and several tim s in Toi-onto ; 
addressed meetings of Clergy in Ottawa and Toronto, the 
Bishops of Ontario and Toronto being respectively present, and 
at Arnprior; and meetiiigs of Churchwomen at Ottawa, Toron- 
to and Peterborough, the Bible class at the Church of the As- 
cension, Toi-cnto, and the Sunday schools at St.Thomas Church, 
Plamilton. At the meetings of Clergy in Ottawa, and after 
tlie Bish(»p had spoken of his visit to the Northwest and of 
the number of friends and acquaintances who greeted him 
wherever he went, the following resolution was unanimously 
adopted on motion of Rev. H. Pollard, seconded by Rev. P. 
Owen Jones : 

" That we, the Ottawa Clerical Guild thank the Venerable 
Ai-chdeacon Pinkham for the valuable information he has 
given us in relation to the Missionary Dioce.se of Rupert's Land : 
we cordially sympathize with the work of the Diocese, and will 
undertake to suppoit it to the best of our power." 

No offertories were given or asked for, but promises were 
made that when collections were taken in behalf of Domestic 
Missions the claims of the Diocese of Ru|)ert's Land would 
receive a larger measure of assistance than has been hitherto 
accorded them. Aid was promised from sevtuai Sunday 
scliools, and the active co-operation of Church women in the 
different [)laces visited, several of whom expressed enthusiastic 
sympathy with our work and an earnest desire to help us to 
carry it on, may be confident y expected. The Ottawa 
Women's Auxiliaiy unanimously voted its collection taken at 
its quarterly meeting, ywhich 1 addressed, to the Diocese of 
Rupert's Land. 

The sum received for the Dioces-e duiing this visit, amount- 
ed to $ll90.7o, of which .SoO+.OO or S42.0() per month comes 
fron\ St. George's (Jhurch.^Ottawa. A detailed statement was 
rendered to the Executive Committee on April 7th. 

My return to Manitoba at Christmas was rendered necessary 
by the understanding come to with the Board of Missions, that 
your Lordship's Rejiresentative should not press the claims of 
this Diocese during the season of Epiphany, when appeals are 
made for Foreign Mi?!si(ms. 

On April 13, I again set out for Eastern Canada, ray duties 
in the l^iocese having engrossed my attention till that date. On

I 



— 08 — 

that occasion I visited Montreal, Quebec, St. Jolin, N.B., Kings., 
ton, PortHope, Hamilton,Gueli)h, St.t'athaiines,Niagara, Brant- 
ford, London, Gait and Hespeler. The Metropolitan of C xnada, 
whom I met in St. John, most kindly invited me to preach in 
liis cathedral, at Fredericton; and Revs. Dr. Partridge and F. 
Murray urged lue to visit Halifax, and promised to aid me to 
the utmost of their power, but my previous arrangements 
rendered it impossible for me to accept either of these invita- 
tions ; and, later on, 1 was obliged to decline invitations to 
Clinton, Woodstock, Petrolia and othei- ))laces. 

1 was pi'esent at the meeting of the Board of Missions, held at 
Quebec. May oth, and was one of the speakers at the Mis.sionary 
Meeting held under its auspices, but the Board could not find 
time to hear the statement I desired to make, and the mem- 
bers piesent contented themselves with brief answers to one or 
two questions. 

On the invitation of the Bishop of Niagara, whose kindness 
1 shall never forget, I was a speaker at the Mis.sionary Meet- 
ing held in connection with the annual session of his Synod, 
and I was accorded a place in the Synod services and a seat 
on the Hoor of the House. Similar })rivilegos were accorded 
me in London, in the Synod of the l)iocese of Huron, whose 
missionary meeting 1 also addressed. 

The uirshoj) of Niagara gave another illustration of the sym- 
])-ithy he had for us — a .sympathy that his elevaticm to the 
liigh ortice of Bishop is certain to dee{)en and intensify — l»y 
devoiing the otiertory on the first day of Synod to the Diocese 
of Rupert's Land. 

Besides pi caching in the cities and towns I have named, I 
addressed St. Paul's Sunday School at Kingston, and tbe Sun- 
day Scliool at (jruel))h, on our Indian work, which they are 
most kindly aiding. 1 also addressed the Sunday School at 
Port Ho]te, the Bible Class in connection with St. George's 
C/hurch, Guel))!!. the (Jirls' Friendly Society, Kingston, and 
tli(3 Kingston branch of the Women's Auxiliary; and conducted 
Divine Service at the Biantford Institution for the Blind. 

Finding, while in Montreal, that tho idea of supporting one 
particular mission in this Diocese was a popular one with ))ro- 
minent and influential members of the St. George's and ^'hrist 
Chtn-ch Cathedral (Congregations, I wrote to the Rectors of 
these churches (The Very Rev. the Dean of Montreal, and Rev.

J. G. Norton), asking tliem to give us the required grant 
for Neepawa and Oak Lake respectively, and promising that 
the clergyman, when appointed, should rei)ort ([uartei-ly to 
the Rector of the congregation contributing; the urant, and 
thus keep up a direct sui)ply of infcvmation. To this ])ropo- 
sition I liave had no reply. 

Of course the sums actually received do not by any means 
represent the interest that we may hope has been stirred u'p. 

From the kindness everywliere shown me and the interest 
tliat has been awakened, 1 think we may feel that there is a 
growing sentiment in om- favcjr in Eastern Canada, and may 
count upon increased assistance for our Ciun-ch work. But it 
I'emains to be seen whether tiie i)resence of a liviii<>- aiient who 
know." whereof he speaks, will ]iot he. from time to time necess- 
ary tf keep up the interest ami make the su))ply of means 
that are so urgently needed tiow steadily in. No doubt the 
Canadian Church will embrace the opportunity that the meet- 
ijig of her General S^aiod next September will afford, to turn 
to the best account the three years' ex]icrience she has gained 
in dealing with Mission work, and will then devisee such 
measures as will give that woi'k a foremost place in the hearts 
'•*" her people. 

In telling our brethern in tlie cast the story of our need;; 1 
felt that to si)eak only of funds woultl by no means exhaust 
my theme. I have spoken of {»ur need, never so great as it is 
now, of men, living men, men of g(jod rc{)ort full of the s[)irit 
and of wisdom ; but 1 am nnich mistaken if our need is not 
more or less felt in every Diocese in the Dominion. I believe 
I am not alone in thinking that throughout Cauada to-day the 
special want of the Church is such a bajjtism of the Holy 
Spirit as to make men remember that the work of the ministry 
is the noblest of all woi'ks, and that if there were to-day the 
same faith, the same zeal, the same forgetfulness of self in the 
all abs()r])ing duty of striving to lead men to God, that charac- 
terized the times of the A|)()stles, .similar results would follow. 
Kow many of our leading people think of the pastoral ofhce for 
their sons :• How uiany mothers in the land whose sympathy 
with every form of good work shews that they love the Lord, 
dedicate theii sons in infancy to the highestof all employments ^ 
We nuist put this woik on the very liighest i)lane ; we nnist 
have the very best of Canada's sons bearing the Ark of the 
Lord. 



— 70 — 

England is to-tlay sending out some of hci best and most 
gifted sons for Mission woik in all parts of the heathen world ; 
will Canada refuse her best to lay the foundations of Christ's 
kingdom in this n^w part of the Dominion on whose future so 
many high hoi)es are built / 

If then this be our gi'eat want, let us resolutely set ourselves 
to the task of supplying it, and we kn(nv that we can corli- 
dentiy look to the Lord of the Harvest to bless all means that 
are used to tali and send forth laborers into iiis Harvest." 



1 am, 



My Lord, 

Ever dutifully yours,

"At t]i(' Meeting of the SyiKKl of tliis Diocese, lield at Win- 
iiipen-. (Ill the 2Sth and 'iOth October, I.S85, tiie following 
resohitioii was nnaniniously a(U)|)te(i : 

"That a (.oiiiiaittee he appointed to propai'e an address to 
the Enjjlish Societies, and the Keclesiastieal Province of 
(Janada, setting fortli tlie present financial condition ot this 
Diocese — the urgent necessity for establishing sound founda- 
tions for carrying on the work of our church in this country, 
with its yeaily int^reasing population — and the impossibility 
of doing wliat is necessary in such a young community with- 
out further assistance from the older branches of the church." 

The Committee now beg to lay the following statement be- 
fore the English Societies, and the Province of Canada. 

The Diocese covers the whole of Manitoba, and extends 
eastward through a prtrtion of Ontario. 

There are at present al)out fifty clergymen in the Diocese 
of whom nineteen are either in charge of self-supporting 
parishes, or are C. M. S. Indian Missionaries, or are a portion of 
the College and Cathedral staff Twenty-live are missionaries 
in the country districts paid partly tjut of Diocesan funds, and 
partly by the people amongst whom they labor. 

The amount contributed by the Diocese at present averages 
about sr)Oo to each clerijyman, and involves an annual ajjiJi'e- 
gate payment of about Sl2,o()0. 

There are six churches in Winnipeg, and two others, self- 
supporting. An endowment fund amounting at present to 
about .S-o,0()(), the interest of which is available for missionary 
]iurposes, exists in the Diocese. The different missions supple- 
ment the grants from the Diocese by direct contributions to 
their clergymen. Suljscriptions and collecti(ms are also made 
in every parish and mission in aid of the general Mission 
Fund. A considerable sum is being raised and expended 
every yeai- foi- the erection of churches and parsonages in the 
several missions. These various sums, including tl;j expendi-

The total amount therefoie expundiMl for our church work 
in the Diocese was last year about Soo.OlM). 

The great depression of business which has existed for tlie 
last two or three years in Manitoba, has seriously crippled the; 
ability of our church }>eople tt) subscribe, and lias rendered it 
impossible at present to increase contributions for chuicli pur- 
]n)ses. Many of our peoi)le are just starting in a new country 
and have not been long enough at work to do moie than 
make a livelihood for themselves and families. 

The Mission Fund starts this tinancial year with a debit bal- 
ance of about !*7oO. Its outlay for the current year with its 
present missionary staff, including all expenses of management, 
travelling of clergymen to visit vacant or unopenetl nnssions, 
to sup))ly outfits, etc., etc., will ])robably -each fully .Sir),()()(>. 
With even increased collections throughout the Diocese it is 
dirticult to see how a revenue of i5i"i,()00 can be secui-ed if the 
S. P. G. are compelled to cairy out their intention of reducing 
their grant for next year by £2iK) or $1,000. 

This Diocese is now passing througli a severe anil trying 
crisis. Three years ago engagements began to be entered 
into, in part encouraged by promises of aid from Canada, 
which unfortunately have not been fulfilled. The Board of 
]3omestic Missions formed by the Provincial Synod of ' 'anada 
])roposed to raise S0,O(K) yearly, (besides $1,000 for St John's 
College), for establishing oiu- church in this Diocese on broad 
and solid foundations. We have leceived In full ))aynu'iit, as 
we understand, for the current year from Canada, the sum of 
$455 only. 

To show the ai)preciation of the si)iritual necessities and 
wants of this new country, by others, it may be well to point 



R* 



— 7» — 

out what one body is now doing in tlie North- we.st. For the 
year ended -Ust \larch, lb8o, it .sent from Eastern Canada to 
Manitoba, in aid of its college in Winnijjeg — for home nus- 
sions in Manitoba— for church and manse fund — and for In- 
dians — a total sum of about i?2!>,0(lO, in additi(m to a sum of 
Si 0,750 for its church work in the territory beyond Manitoba, 
or in all about S-t2,7r)U. 

Our church in this Diocese is straining every effort to suj)|)ly 
its ministrations in every part of the country where settlers 
are going in. 

There "re now, within the Diocese, forty-three church edi- 
fices and twenty jiarsonages. Thty have mainly been erected 
(luring the last live or six years, and have cost an aggregate 
sum of at least i?*2(K),00(). This is exclusive of organs and all 
interior hirnishing. Special grants have been made in favour 
<if individual buildings l)y the S. P. C. K., and they have also 
given a block grant of £2,000 or $1U,000, which has been used 
in aidinn the buildiuij' of some of the fortv-three churches, and 
has n )w all been spent. That Society has at its last meeting 
generously given another block grant of £1,000 or !55,0<>0 to 
be ex})ended in the same way. 

Except the aid thus attbrded by the 8. P. C K., the rest of 
the outlay has been found by our own church people within 
the Diocese, including some helj) from fi'iends outside. 

In the Bishops address to the Synod held last nuuith, he 
])ointed out in the following words, three districts within Ids 
Diocese which at ))resent are unsu})plietl or veiy insufticiently 
suj)plied with church ministrations: 

" Let me draw your attention more especially to three 
large tracts of settled country. 

There is a tract counnencing at the frontier neai Wakopa. 
running north 30 miles and west 7<> miles, in which there is 
one clergyman. This tract is situated in eight muiucipalities, 
has 70 town.shii)s, :i-I Pi'ote.stant schools and 2!) post offices. 

There is a second tract consisting of the .settled country 
north of the Manitoba and Northwestei'n Railway from West- 
bourne to Shoal jjake. This tract is situated in seven nuuii- 
cipalities, has 4(i townshi|)s, ;>2 Protestant schools and 14 
post ortices. There is no resid(!nt clergyman. Some of the 
townships adjaeent to the lailway are visited by missionaries 
stationed un the line.

There is a third tract occupying the very centre of Mani- 
toba, lying between lines through the Portage and Brandon 
on the east and west, and between the Manitoba and North- 
western Railway and the Pembina Mountain branch of tlic 
(J. P. R. on the north and south. This tract in which there 
is one resident missionary is situated in twelve municipalities, 
has 150 townships, 7<) Protestant school districts and 30 post 
offices. 1 exclude the townshi})s on the line of railway which 
receive the visits of missionaries stationed at places on the 
lines." 

To properly supply that very large area of country, and to 
till up ga[»s existing in other parts of tlie Diocese, will require 
ten additional missionaries, making, with those at work at 
present, a total of 00, and will bring iip the total expenditure 
in the Diocese to the sum of $20,000 a year, or about $7,500 
beyond our present income. 

The salaries paid to our cleigymeii are moderate in the ex- 
treme. They each have to serve two, and in some cases three 
or more districts, and have to travel many miles every Sunday 
to hold services, no matter what the weather or the state of 
the roads may be. Nearly every one consequently has to be 
at the ex[)ense of keej)ing a horse. 

The clergy attached to the College and Cathedral, in addi- 
tion to their heavy educational work, act as visiting mission- 
aries to places which are unsui)plied with resident clergymen. 

The area covered by each nussion is so largo as to reijuire 
two or even three churches in various parts of the districts. 
Each clergyman should have a i)arsonage. 

To meet the wants of the C'hurch throughout the Diocese at 
least twenty more parsonages are reijuired and from thirty to 
forty additional church editices. To erect these will involve 
an outlay during the next two or three years of certainly Jiot 
less than $100,000. The })eople in the various places will do 
their utuiost.but it is obvious that without aid from abroad their 
etforts must fall far short of the uigent necessities of the case, 
and ex[)erience shows that those elibrts are mainly dependent 
on the pi-esence of missionaries. 

Three hundred miles of branch railways will have been con- 
structed in Manitoba this year. Nearly as nuich more is ex- 
pected to be built ne.\t year. These railways will pass through 
the three districts dcicribetl in the Bisho[)'s charge already

(piloted, and they will be tiio means of pouring a constantly in- 
creasing population into the country. 

Without aid the cluu'ch in this Diooese cannot attempt to 
supply the calls that are being now made upon it, and which 
will so rapidly increase. 

To do its duty properly, to the growing number of church 
people who desire earnestly to remain within its fold, the 
church in tins Diocese needs an addition to its present yearly 
income of about S>7,500, and if this want is supplied it will 
then have to exjtend in the building of churches and parson- 
ages at least ^100,000 within the next two or three years. 

Its grants to missions are made from year to year, so thai 
when the present depression passes away as each locality ad- 
vances in prosperity, and in it-s ability therefore to increase its 
contributions foi the support of its ovvn mission, the gi'ant 
frou). the geneial fini'l will be gradually withdrawn, pointing 
steadily to a condition of self-support at the earliest possible 
day. By this plan new missions where reipiired can be estab- 
lished and aided, until the whole country becomes sutRciently 
})opulated to render it less ini[)erative to obtain aid from the 
centre. 

The church in Rupert's Land has a great mission Ijetbre it. 
A moderate amount of aid now will eM.al)le it to lay broad and 
solid foundations for future usefulness and strencjth. 

Will it, under its pi'esent grave conditions of ditfioultv, 
a])peal in vain for that aid which this statement explains and 
justifies, and without which it cannot possibly achieve those 
resjlts, which every lover of our church both in Eng'and and 
in Canada, must so ardently desire to see secured in this new 
land, into which such large numbers of church people may be 
expected to enter, both trom England and from Canada.

The Minute of the Committee on tlie Death of Right 
Kev. David Anderson, first Bishop of Rupert's Land. 



" The Executive Committee of the Synod of the Diocese of 
Rupert's Land has heard with deep concern the news of the 
decease of the Right Reverend David Anderson, first Bishop 
of Rujiert's Land. 

Bishop Anderson's Episcopate of fifte- n years was strongly 
marked by loving devotion to his Master's service and by 
dee[), fatherly interest in the various membei-s of his flock. 

His heart yearned over the sad condition of the heathen 
tribes scattered over his innuense Diocese ; he loriixed to se(^ 
them surrounded b}'^ humane and civilizing influences and 
brought to the true light. 

His memorv is atlectioiiately cherislied h\ all the older ref- 
idents of this country, who recall many acts of personal kind- 
ness and thoughtful sympatliy. 

From the time he left the Diocese till the commencement of 
his sad and lingering attiiction, Bishop Anderson manifested 
the liveliest interest in the work of his successor, and <lid 
everything in his jiower to help forward the various plans for 
the advancement of the Church in Rupert's Land, which the 
])r-esent Bishop from time to time set on foot. 

The Committee desires to offt>r to the sorrowing members 
of Bishop Andeisons family the expression of its heartfelt 
sympathy with them in their luireavement, and to express the 
earnest h()j)e that they may ftdly reali//^ that tlieir sorrow is 
his Joy and their loss his gain."
